‘1000 Random Points‘ is a list of locations I created as a bit of fun, an antidote to the many other lists of places to visit that can be found on the web, such as lists of hills, triangulation pillars, etc., but it also serves as an unbiased list including all the different landscape types in Britain, urban and rural, encouraging the exploration of them. If nothing else, a list of places to visit when all other inspiration for somewhere to go fails!
The locations were chosen by converting computer-generated randomly-selected numbers to Ordnance Survey grid references, then pinpointing the nearest publicly accessible point on the map to that grid reference -this would then become the ‘random point’. The only parts of Britain excluded were nature reserves, other environmentally sensitive areas and seriously hazardous locations – e.g., unstable cliffs, dangerous tidal conditions.
